Pacos Tacos, Metairie, LA Report #299

This place sells the authentic, Mexican street type tacos.  Until I was in my 40’s, the only type of tacos I had tried were the Taco Bell type tacos, with the crunchy, corn shell.  Then after Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005, numerous taco trucks showed up in New Orleans, and my eyes were opened!  I… Continue reading Pacos Tacos, Metairie, LA Report #299

Casa Garcia, Metairie, LA Report #280

  We’re still navigating our way through the Coronavirus apocalypse, so every restaurant that is open only has pick up and delivery.  I’ve heard great things about this place for some time now.  I hate going to a new place and judging them based on take out food.  It seems to me a restaurant can’t… Continue reading Casa Garcia, Metairie, LA Report #280

Superior Grill, New Orleans, LA Report #218

  A coworker of mine told me he came here and had the Seafood Chile Con Queso.  He raved about it.  I decided to give it a try.  We decided on: And the food: You can get the Seafood Chili Con Queso with shrimp, crawfish or a combo.  We decided to go just with the… Continue reading Superior Grill, New Orleans, LA Report #218

Johnny Sanchez, New Orleans, LA Report #205

I get tired of the same old Tex-Mex menus at Mexican restaurants.  They all have basically the same food with maybe slight variations.  So when I saw this place had pig ears and crawfish enchiladas on the menu, I figured I’d give it a try! Beautiful place.  I decided on: And the food: I don’t… Continue reading Johnny Sanchez, New Orleans, LA Report #205

Cabo Flats, West Palm Beach, FL Report #198

Our last meal in West Palm Beach, Florida.  After great pizza last night at City Pizza, we decided on Mexican food tonight.  Pretty disappointing.  The atmosphere and extensive bar menu, along with the Margarita towers, gave me the impression this was more of a drinking place than an eating place.  The food backed that up.… Continue reading Cabo Flats, West Palm Beach, FL Report #198

2 Amigos Mexican Buffet, Kenner, LA Report #196

If you want high quality Tex Mex food, DO NOT come here!  As a kid I used to love a place called Pancho’s Mexican Buffet.  In fact, I think it was the first time I experienced an “all you can eat” buffet in my life!  There are no more Pancho’s in the New Orleans area,… Continue reading 2 Amigos Mexican Buffet, Kenner, LA Report #196

Los Jefes, Metairie, LA Report #173

  The Super Bowl is the day after tomorrow.  Being a native New Orleanian and diehard Saints fan, I’m still depressed.  If you don’t know why, what rock have you been under?  It was just the worst thing not only to happen in NFL history, but in WORLD history! Anyway, being depressed or not I… Continue reading Los Jefes, Metairie, LA Report #173

La Providencia, Gretna, LA Report #160

  My favorite Mexican Restaurant on the Westbank is El Paso (Report #9).   I passed this place a thousand times and thought about trying it out, and tonight I finally did. Like any other Mexican place they start you out with chips and salsa.  The chips were very crisp and fresh, and the salsa… Continue reading La Providencia, Gretna, LA Report #160

El Patron Mexican Grill & Cantina, Gretna, LA Report #131

  When I moved to the Westbank about 21 years ago, El Paso (Report #9), soon became my favorite place for Tex-Mex cuisine.  For awhile now I’ve been hearing El Patron was very good so I figured I’d give it a try. Pretty little place, with a nice outdoor dining area with ceiling fans blazing… Continue reading El Patron Mexican Grill & Cantina, Gretna, LA Report #131

Los Panchos Mexican Food, Gretna, LA Report #93

  In honor of Cinco De Mayo I had to eat some Tex-Mex food today!  My favorite place for that type of cuisine is El Paso (Report #9).  But on Cinco De Mayo, an illegal alien would have a better chance of getting into Trump Tower than I would have getting into that place.  It’s… Continue reading Los Panchos Mexican Food, Gretna, LA Report #93
